Miley Cyrus has a Disney sweet sixteen birthday party

Disney returned the favor Miley Cyrus has given them in the form of Hannah Montana by throwing her a huge sweet sixteen birthday party complete with fireworks set to the the dual-personality star’s hit “The Best of Both Worlds.”  Rolling a PR, advertising, and tween-fan stunt all into one, Disney took the opportunity to plug their “What Will You Celebrate?” tourist campaign and give a hefty donation to Youth Service of America organization.

In one of the evening’s big highlights, Disney CEO Bob Iger will present a special gift of $1 million to Youth Service America on behalf of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Disney has worked with YSA since 2004, providing “Disney Minnie Grants” to support youth-led community service projects that engage young people between the ages of five to 14 from around the world.

“On behalf of everyone at Disney, I’m happy to wish Miley a very happy birthday and celebrate this special occasion with a donation to Youth Service America,” Iger said. “We’re delighted to have Miley join in Disney’s great legacy of giving back through volunteerism while encouraging kids everywhere to do the same.”

Miley arrived at the big birthday party walking a carpet of her favorite color, purple, with other Disney Channel stars to celebrate with more than 5,000 people at the Happiest Place on Earth.  She performed a short concert, including a duet with her dad, Billy Ray, of course, and then took 10 lucky Youth Service of America volunteers on the Disneyland rides.  If you’ve ever been to any “special” event at anything Disney, you know the Mouse loves pyrotechnics, so a “spectacular farewell in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle” commenced with a Happy Birthday sing-along and a sky lit like a birthday cake as Miley blew out the candles on the real one in front of her.

But it wasn’t fun and games and Splash Mountain for everyone.  Miley’s party date landed on the last day of Disneyland’s annual Gay Days which brings upward of 30,000 people to Disneyland for the unofficially designated three days each year. Disney bowed to their Tween Queen’s request to close the park early, cutting time off the the 3-day event.  Gay Days attendees were tolerant, though, and said it was their day to go across the concrete to California Adventure anyway, which is staying open late to be accommodating.

The Gay Days organization seems to be taking the shift in stride. “Yes, Miley Cyrus is having her birthday at Disneyland on Sunday, October 5, and Disneyland will be closing at 5 p.m. that day,” reads a note on its Web site. “That’s our scheduled day at Disney’s California Adventure, so we don’t foresee any changes to Gay Days Anaheim. Although we would love her to come sing for us!”

Like no other sixteen-year old I know, Miley declared the birthday party at Disneyland “really awesome” and swore she’d never forget it.  At least not until the drunken, hot tub party she has planned for later.

    More and more I grow to dislike this girl. I’m very glad neither of my kids fell into the Hannah Montana nonsense.

    I get that the Gay Days organization was ok with the park closing at 5, but what about that family of 4 who just spent their hard earned cash on a dream vacation to take their children to Disney? They were robbed. :evil:

    Somehow I think we have lost sight of what a “sweet sixteen” party is all about. Young girl just coming into the flower of her womanhood and making her debut as a young woman, all that? Miley’s so far past that, it’s not even funny.

    You know, for years my favorite color was purple. Loved it, if I went to a dress rack I was automatically drawn to the purple clothes. Lots of purple in my house. Lately, though, I’ve been liking yellow a lot and wondering if I was developing a new favorite color. Just reading that purple is Miley’s favorite did it for me. It’s yellow for me from now on. Thank you, Ceilidh, for reporting that and helping me make an important decision in my life.

    Ha! My sweet sixteen today was spent at school and then savouring a quarter of an ice cream cake :P It’s not really a big birthday in this country though. (unfortunately? Probably not)

    I was making stone tools and hunting saber tooth tigers. :lol:

    I was grounded on my 16th birthday. My Dad had recently informed me that I couldn’t get my license until my dismal grades improved, and I freaked out. Hence the punishment. :?

    did anyone else see that email on this guy who lives near the park was complaining about the fireworks being sent up at 11:30 pm!! he said they are normally sent up at 09:30 & he said they usally start small & get bigger but he said this time they were huge the WHOLE TIME she seems so spoiled to me thats ridiculous to do

  10. Holly says:

    If you have the money to do it, I say go for it!

    Who wouldn’t love the chance to spoil their child with a disney world party?

  11. Jeanne says:

    Oh no, look out for soon to be released steamy sex pix from the after party with Miley and Mickey. The shame of it all!

  12. vdantev says:

    What’s the difference between Miley Cyrus and Mickey Mouse? One is a fake plastic character acting as a mascot for huge evil corporate empire and the other is a big f*cking mouse ! :lol:

    I actually can’t abide Disney products, including Miley. There’s something almost sick about “the Happiest Place on Earth”, even if you don’t worry about the Reedy Creek Improvement District strategy for protecting themselves against litigation.
